Social Media Creates Modern Day Nastazi Spies for the Global Elite

Facebook and its infiltration into our modern society is now the barometer of whether or not a person is “suspicious” or not. Some psychologists are even suggesting that not having a Facebook profile means that you are a psychopath.

The link between the Batman shooter and the Norwegian mass murderer was their lack of Facebook profiles. In fact, this may “be the first sign that you are a mass murderer.”

By not following the mass of sheeple giving up their personal information to online social networking sites as well as leaving a small online footprint, this signals a person who is potentially dangerous.

Even becoming employed may hinge on your Facebook profile – as a way to monitor your personal life and where you fit into society. The CIA has a quite popular Facebook page that invites college student to apply for National Clandestine Service.

In March, a letter from Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, where he redefines “hacker” as meaning “building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done” and those “hackers” are “idealistic people” who have a “positive impact on the world.”

The NSA recruits students from colleges and universities in a program that looks for the next generation of American-grown hackers.

Steven la Fountain explains that new hires must be able to decipher the inner workings of computer imputation to assist the US government in being the superpower of the technology world. “We are not asking them to teach kids how to break into systems, we’re not asking them to teach that. And a lot of them have said they wouldn’t teach that,” la Fountain adds. “We’re just asking them to teach the hardcore fundamental science that we need students to have when they come to work [at the NSA].”

Zuckerberg then refers to the NSA Utah Spy Center that “should be up and running in September 2013” which will connect all servers and routers and store all digital data in “near-bottomless databases” including private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches in conjunction with paper trails like receipts, traffic tickets, retail purchases to create detailed profiles on every American citizen.

Researchers Use WiFi Radar to Covertly Monitor the Movement of People Through Walls

In today’s world, the seeming safety and privacy provided by four walls and a roof is quickly diminishing with microchips enabling mobile devices to see through walls, microchips allowing mobile devices to provide ultra-precise location information, the hijacking of cell phone camerasand even stealthily recording sound and other environmental information, supposedly for advertising purposes.

Of course, those examples represent just one of the many ways in which our privacy is being invaded and diminished with a vengeance in the United States today.

Now new method is being explored by researchers which could allow people to use so-called “bistatic WiFi radar” at a distance in order to covertly detect and monitor people moving behind walls.

The researchers published the findings in a paper called “Through-the-Wall Sensing of Personnel Using Passive Bistatic WiFi Radar at Standoff Distances” in IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, volume 50, Issue 4.

The emphasis appears to be the ability to detect people “uncooperatively and covertly,” something which is also becoming increasingly important in facial recognition technology and other biometric technologies.

The researchers, who are affiliated with the Department of Security and Crime Science at the University College London in the United Kingdom, have demonstrated the first successful through-the-wall (TTW) detection of moving people using passive WiFi radar.

The federal government is spying on every single American, say NSA whistleblowers

via: NaturalNews

By: Ethan A. Huff

[NaturalNews] Two former high-ranking officials at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), a federal bureaucracy that collects data and intelligence on foreign communications for national security purposes, have come forward with allegations that the NSA actively monitors Americans as well. According to testimonies from both Thomas Drake, a former NSA senior official, and Kirk Wiebe, a former NSA senior analyst, the agency actively monitors and collects intelligence on every single American as part of a massive spying operation.

RT.com first broke the story after Drake and Wiebe, on two recent but separate occasions, disclosed inside information about the NSA’s spying activities to reporters. During a recent interview with Eliot Spitzer, host of Current TV’s “Viewpoint” program, Drake explained how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a catalyst for redefining America as a “foreign nation” in order to legitimize unwarranted surveillance of innocent Americans — and he says this backdoor spying program continues to this day.

“When you open up the Pandora’s Box of just getting access to incredible amounts of data, for people that have no reason to be put under suspicion, no reason to have done anything wrong, and just collect all that for potential future use or even current use, it opens up a real danger,” said Drake during the interview.

“And for what else could they use that data (other than for future prosecutions unrelated to terrorism or for blackmail purposes), particularly when it’s all being hidden behind the mantle of national security.”

Binney expressed similar sentiments during a recent interview with journalist Geoff Shively, according to RT.com, in which he disclosed that the federal government is basically collecting whatever data it possibly can on every single American. This is made even easier, of course, by social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Path, and many others that actively monitor and track people’s every action.

Conversations w/Great Minds – NSA Whistleblowers – Are They Spying on the Entire Country?

via: TheBigPicture
July 30, 2012

For tonight’s Conversations with Great Minds – I’m joined by NSA whistleblowers Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe. Both men were involved in exposing the NSA’s massive, illegal, domestic spying program known as the Trailblazer project initiated in 2000. Despite not leaking any classified information – and exhaustively going through all the protocols required for members of the intelligence community to blow the whistle on wrongdoing – both men faced serious retributions for going public with what they knew about the NSA’s surveillance program. In 2007 – after a reporter for the Baltimore Sun obtained information regarding waste, fraud, and abuse at the NSA – FBI agents raided the home Kirk Wiebe – confiscating computer hard drives and business records – and revoking security clearance that Wiebe – an NSA veteran – had held since 1964. Wiebe was not charged with any crime. However – Thomas Drake – whose home was also raided – was charged with multiple crimes including violation of the Espionage Act of 1917. Eventually those charges were dropped in 2011. Since then – Drake has gone on to win multiple awards for his courage in blowing the whistle on the NSA – including the Ridenour Prize for Truth Telling and the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence. And both he and Kirk Wiebe have done tremendous work to inform all of us on the growing American surveillance state. The National Security Agency is building a massive spy center in Utah. What for? And will Americans be the targets of the NSA’s prying eyes?

911 caller accidentally exposes illegal NYPD spying operation

With the release of the tape of a 911 call in New Brunswick, New Jersey, originally taped in June 2009, the public can now hear a somewhat hilarious instance of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign actually doing something positive.

Salil Sheth, a building superintendent at an apartment complex near Rutgers University, just happened to stumble upon a secret New York Police Department (NYPD) safe house far from the department’s jurisdiction during an inspection.

This type of activity isn’t all that surprising seeing as an NYPD officer was locked in a psych ward by his superiors after exposing massive corruption and the NYPD has arrested and detained a couple for 23 hours for dancingcalled people who film police “professional agitators,” lied about their counter-terrorism recordspied on Muslims across the northeastfalsified drug charges to meet quotas, to just mention a few incidents.

Sheth had notified the tenants of unit 1076 of the upcoming inspection weeks earlier but his notice was still in the door, so he let himself in and quickly realized that there was something incredibly suspicious.

U.S. government’s secret wiretaps violate the Constitution, rules court

via: NaturalNews
Thursday, July 26, 2012
by: J. D. Heyes

[NaturalNews] Finally, a federal court has ruled that the government has overstepped its constitutional bounds that are supposed to curb its ability to spy on citizens.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled recently that the National Security Agency – the nation’s premier global spy – has, “on at least one occasion,” violated the Constitution’s Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure.

The ruling from the secret U.S. national security court is the first time the federal government has acknowledged its spy activities overstepped legal parameters since passage of a law in 2008 “that overhauled surveillance laws following the uproar over the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program in the George W. Bush Administration,”The Wall Street Journal reported.

The finding of the court was disclosed in a letter from a top aide to National Intelligence Director James Clapper, to Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., the latter is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a potent critic of the law which permits warrantless wiretaps.

The aide, Kathleen Turner, a senior official in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said in the letter that the agency had “remedied” the problem which led to the violation. She also said subsequent surveillance requests had been approved by the court.

‘Transparency, compliance, oversight’

In commenting about the ruling, Wyden said the government had at times “circumvented the spirit of the law” in conducting its surveillance and wiretapping operations. He noted the national security court has agreed on at least one occasion.

“Many officials have tried to present a picture of careful compliance with both the law and the constitutional rights of Americans,” he said, WSJ reported. “This information shows that hasn’t always been the case and there have been what I consider to be some serious violations.”
